Actor Akshay Kumar on Tuesday dropped the teaser of his upcoming film OMG 2. The social comedy drama is a sequel to the much-celebrated 2012 film OMG-Oh My God, starring Paresh Rawal.
The one minute twenty six seconds teaser gives a glimpse of the film’s world and introduces key characters, with Akshay playing Lord Shiva and actor Pankaj Tripathi in the role of a believer. The character of Tripathi, Kanti Sharan Mudgal, is a departure from Rawal’s atheist in OMG, which had featured Akshay Kumar as Lord Krishna.
The teaser reveals almost nothing about the plot, but introduces the dynamics between Akshay Kumar and Pankaj Tripathi, showcasing how God eventually helps the latter in his fight. While OMG questioned blind faith, the sequel is reported to be based around education system.

Written and directed by Amit Rai, OMG 2 will release in theatres on August 11 and have a box office face-off with Sunny Deol’s Gadar 2. Presented by Viacom18 Studio in association with Cape Of Good Films & Wakaoo Films, OMG 2 also has filmmaker Chandraprakash Dwivedi attached as creative producer. Dwivedi had last year helmed Akshay Kumar starrer Prithviraj.
OMG 2 will be Akshay’s second theatrical release of the year, after the box office washout Selfiee, co-starring Emraan Hashmi. The actor has been going through a rough phase with consecutive films bombing at the box office.
